Description

For any aspiring martial artist having a real-life, hard-drinking, version of Mr Miyagi turn up on your doorstep offering to teach the secrets of the Samurai would be a dream come true.

When Toby’s best friend Bryan returns from travelling in Japan, along with the enigmatic kendo master Suzuki-sensei, he jumps at the chance to move to the foothills of Mount Fuji to study the traditional art of Japanese sword fighting. But from the very beginning, life as a modern-day Samurai – particularly one required to work in a stifling paper factory – proves even more challenging than becoming the real ‘Karate Kid’.

Despite a toe-curling disregard for the rules and Japanese social etiquette, they are drawn kicking, screaming, and laughing into the fascinating no-nonsense world of Bushido – The Way of the Warrior.
